. mort zuckerman, publisher of u.s. news and world report, publisher of "the daily news" and he has a few real estate holdings here and there. arianna huffington, chair, president, and editor in chief of "the huffington post" media group. and ed connor, visiting scholar at the american enterprise institute, former managing director at bane capital. arianna, do you think that the obama you're seeing now -- and one of the things i'm struck by is how the election changed the political climate. # the republicans seem on the defensive, trying to reinvent the plan. obama seems more confident. is this the new obama? is this the old obama? is this the real obama? >> well, the great thing for obama right now is that he has the public on his side. my concern right now -- and that's, i think, will determine which obama will actually prevail -- is that jobs and growth are not on his agenda. it is absolutely stunning. if you go back to the election, he kept campaigning around jobs, rebuilding our bridges, rebuilding our infrastructure, the american dream, saving it for the middle class. and both the r
congress into putting off billions of dollars in automatic spending cuts, cuts he fears will wreck the u.s. economic recovery. basically he wants lawmakers to kick the can down the road one more time. let's go to our white house correspondent dan lothian. dan is joining us. dan, the president made a little bit of a surprise appearance over in the white house briefing room. >> reporter: that's right. very surprising because the president in the past has criticized these short-term deals saying that this is not what the american people sent their elected officials to washington to do. you have this march 1st deadline quickly approaching. while congress is trying to work on a bigger budget, 1 pine point $2 trillion package, the president says they need more time in order to continue tipping away at the problem. the big concern is that everyone believes that the economy is moving in the right direction. the president is pointing to auto sales, the housing, to manufacturing. and so there's this worry that if this see quester happens, if these deep cuts happen then it could be a major set back f
't giving up yet. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." cutting our pay. that's how one u.s. officer says u.s. troops view the recommendation for a smaller pay increase in 2014. no one goes into the military to get rich but most servicemen and women need every dollar in their paycheck. so worried that next paycheck may be smaller is not going over well among the troops. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has the details. she's working the story. barbara, what's going on? >> wolf, in this town, there's nothing that causes more anxiety in budget politics than the concept of cutting the pay for the troops. but that is exactly what is on the table if congress and the president cannot reach an agreement on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defen
in the united states on this? >> there is no official reaction from the u.s. government. of course, the u.s. was expecting this ted stevens morning. was speaking to an official that said the test could come any time. obviously they have been bracing for it. right now a lot of frantic telephone calls going on. not only within the u.s. government but also in south korea. the new secretary of state, john kerry, spoke to the south korean foreign minister just moments ago about the latest nuclear test and now everybody is trying to get their diplomatic ducks in a row. everybody getting on the same page. there will be a security council meeting tomorrow morning, 11:00 eastern time. to discuss the next response and that is what the question is. what will the traffic there? will the chinese sign on to the tough resolution that the united states is looking for? will they set on to tough sanctions. it is unclear at this point what china will agree to and that is the best the u.s. can hope for in terms of getting anything out of the u.n. security council. then i also understand the united states is al

say they do not have the capability to make a bomb. >> well, zoraida, it will be days before the u.s. has a very good handle on the size of the explosion, the size of the payload, but at first glance what u.s. officials are very concerned about are north korea's claims that it testified a miniaturized nuclear weapon. why is that so concerning? that means they're closer to making a missile that they could launch toward the united states. these types of dplier tesnuclea moves them closer to mastering the idea. it was expected, officials tell me, that north korea warned the u.s. and china yesterday that a test was eminent. after the test president obama issued a statement. what he said was north korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs constitute a threat to u.s. national security and to international peace and security. we will strengthen close coordination with allies and partners and work with our six-party partners,united nations security council and other u.n. member states to pursue this. they will be meeting this morning in an emergency session. my source is telling
. >> the u.s. at least for now is not in the cone. >> the initial forecast, she might go out to sea, but that changed quickly. >> we were eight days ahead on this storm. we watched this thing on the computers turn left and turn right a couple of times before the one model said this is going to america. >> this could be a big storm as it makes that turn and slams directly into where new york and new jersey come together. >> seven days before the storm hit, computer predictions, called models, put landfall in new jersey. there was time to get ready, board up, evacuate. >> this morning i formally declared a state of emergency in anticipation of hurricane sandy. >> when the storm hit atlantic city on the 29th, it was just five miles, that's it, just five miles, from where the earliest forecast said it would cross the coastline. >> it's unprecedented. that's the best word i could use. there's no way any other storm in recent memory has been forecast that good, for that long. >> this pinpoint accuracy came from powerful super computers. they digest tremendous amounts of data about climate
particularly in the u.s. has always found its way there. now, running a government with a two-month budget, you know, try to run a business. try to hire people and try to do capital spending and try to figure out how you're going to use innovation. it's -- no matter what you think about what the government wants it to be, doing it the way we're doing it is absolutely insane. terribly inefficient. every bad thing you can say about government gets worse when it's on the short term, unknown future processes. >> on the big public policy issue of the day, we should involve economic policy and i'm asking you this because you found it and ran for many years the largest company in the world. the issue is, do we need to get the fiscal house in order with a long-term budget deal and would that trigger a kind of avalanche of business investment? is that what is holding businesses back? >> certainly the uncertainty that we haven't reached compromises on these things, that can't be good. it's got to make business hold back. the fact that the investments in the future may be cut back, that's a little bit sca
this nuclear test. we're getting this information from the u.s. geological survey which reported a seismic disturbance in north korea. the seismic event was centered near the side of pyeoongyangpyoo previous tests. officials have confirmed seismic activity in north korea. south korea says it detected what it called an artificial earthquake north of its border. the tremor, though, was different from what you might consider to be a normal earthquake. no further information at this stage is known. there's no official confirmation coming from anyone, least of all from pyongyang. north korea as we've been telling you, widely expecting to carry out this nuclear test any day now. pyongyang is expecting to stage a high intensity -- we have anna koran standing by in seoul, south korea, we also have alex in tokyo. let's go to anna koran, who is in seoul for us right now. anna, you're on military maneuvers just a few days ago, with the south koreans and u.s. military there. there is a great deal of preparation in south korea for this event. essentially, given what's happened, what can the south korea

and establish some sort of communist state. >> and why would they target the u.s. embassy? >> reporter: they are anti-capitalists and they're very, very opposed to the u.s. and nato. analysts say probably two reasons for this attack. one is to embarrass the turkish government. two is to protest the presence of u.s. patriot missiles on turkish soil. right now, 400 american troops are in turkey and they are moving that patriot missile battery into position on turkey's border with syria. turkey requested that help because of the mortars flying in from syria and they wanted the american missile to help shoot it down. >> and chris, how was the attacker able to gain access to the embassy compound? with all this talk about embassy security and what happened in benghazi, how was the attacker able to get there? >> reporter: basically he walked up to the embassy wearing a suicide vest. but it's a gated compound with blast doors, reinforced windows, and several checkpoints. he never made it past the very first checkpoint. so when he exploded his vest, it killed one of the local turkish guards who

to protect the u.s. from devastating cyber attacks, and china considered one of the biggest offenders. the cyber security company, of course, has been saying it's identified a hacking group in shanghai with ties to china's military and says it watched those hackers systematically steal information from more than 140 companies. china denying any involvement. >>> and police still have no clue who managed to pull off a daring heist at the brussels airport. thieves managed to steal $50 million worth of diamonds from a plane on the tarmac. on monday night, two cars burst through the perimeter fence, the airport, sped towards the plane. authorities say the men were wearing police uniforms and were heavily armed. they were in and out of the airport within minutes. it is cnn's top international news story today. >>> of course, we are talking about the olympic star pistorius. everybody is following this. everybody is talking about this. it is really quite amazing. another night we're going to spend in jail. we don't know the outcome, whether he's going to be released on bail. this is playing o
to a different reality. economic mobility in the u.s. is low compared to what it was in times past and with current levels in many european countries and canada. you hear all about rags to riches stories, but they are the exceptions. a comprehensive study by the pew economic mobility project documents that in the u.s. today, few poor people become even upper middle class. now, some of the criticism of president obama's program has come from people who worry about the government's track record in the area of early childhood education. they point to head start, the long-standing program that provides this education to disadvantaged children. the department of health and human services released a study of head start in 2010 which was updated in 2012 which concludes its positive effects begin to fade in a few years. this has led many to call the program a failure and urged the government not to throw good money after bad. people are jumping to conclusions about a very complicated subject without understanding the study or social science research. three scholars from the university of c

, the question we are asking today, when is it legal for the u.s. government to kill its own citizens overseas? talking about americans here. justice department memo made public by nbc spells out the position, by the obama administration, now what it says the memo justifies the targeted killing of an american who is considered a senior operational leader of al qaeda or an associated group, and who poses an imminent threat of violent attack against the united states. want to bring in halle goran any. a controversial issue, under president bush, now president obama. the fact that the government does have the power, and the authority, to kill an american overseas that's considered a threat. and how do they define that? >> that's the question because when you say imminent, it could be imminent in a few hours, in a few weeks, saying you can target a member of al qaeda, senior operational al qaeda leader, or associated forces. how are you defining associated forces? how are you defining the word imminent? how are you defining the word threat? all of these things are things that are open to interpret
angle. i want to go to the military correspondent. we know he was a u.s. reservist. me about what he did in the military. >> he did security for river patrols and he was a lieutenant and recalled the active duty about six years ago and spent about six months in bahrain doing security work there. he talks about the warfare and there is nothing in the record that indicates any sort of special operations training. in his manifesto, he does say i didn't need their honor, courage, and commitment, but i thank them for reinforcing it with me. >> what are about having multiple weapons at his disposal including assault rifles. how good of a shooter is he? >> good question. we have been checking sources here. there three levels of marksmanship. marksman, sharpshooter and the top level is expert. with the m-16 he is a marksman. good, but the lowest level. with the nine millimeter, he qualified as expert. the highest award a trailer can receive for weapons qualification. to gain that he would have gone through several courses of 5 both standing and kneeling both strong and weak side firing. somethin

, this dates back to when lance was riding alongside floyd landis with the u.s. postal service team, and then he comes out with this confession, et cetera, and now this pursuit by the justice department. >> reporter: several years ago that former teammate, floyd landis, in a whistleblower lawsuit filed against lang armstrong and his sports teams and various associates, that was filed a couple of years ago. now lance armstrong's lawyers tell us they have been notified by the department of justice and told that the justice department is joining in on that lawsuit. this is interesting because about a year ago the justice department failed or decided not to pursue any criminal charges against lance armstrong, had given that up before the u.s. anti-doping agency put out its report which led to lance armstrong confessing in that televised interview back in january that, indeed, he had used performance enhancing drugs throughout his cycling career and winning those seven tour de france titles. now this is a move that could cost lance armstrong tens of millions of dollars. what is interesti

intrastructure. a 2009 study of u.s. infrastructure by the american society of civil engineers concluded that we need $2.2 trillion to be spent over five years to bring the nation's roads, bridges, railway tracks, airports and associated systems up to grade. let me make three crucial points. first, this is the big bang. it would be the most effective way to create good jobs. unemployment in the construction industry is among the nation's highest. around 16%. the private sector is still not investing much in construction. second, it's cheap. the federal government's borrowing costs today are lower than they are ever likely to be, again. deferring maintenance is not fiscal prudence. when your boiler explodes, it costs more than it would had you just spent the money keeping it in good functioning order. we need to spend that money now. third, this is an area where the federal government has always had a big role, one that republicans have long embraced. in 1930, even as herbert hoover was trying to balance the federal budget, he urged large scale expenditures on infrastructure. despite all this, in

claiming his death proves they were absolutely justified in passing legislation banning u.s. nationals from adopting any more russian children. they did that at the end of last year. partly in response to u.s. legislation, targeting russian human rights abusers. but also because of concerns held for a long time here by russian officials who say they are worried about the way russian orphans are treated in the united states. supporters of the adoption ban claim since the 1990s 19 other russian children have died after being adopted by americans. the russian government says it is very concerned about the welfare of russian orphans and says 60,000 have are been adopted over the last 20 years. the adoption ban is one of the key reasons why relations between the united states and russia are the worst that they have been in a long time. a line of politicians here and officials have responded to the death of this 3-year-old boy by effectively saying, we told you so. phil black, cnn, russia. >>> european scandal over mislabeled meat keeps getting big der. details of the latest recall foods where tr
